EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL AUDITIONS
Evil Dead The Musical takes all the elements of the cult classic films, The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness and combines them for one of the craziest, funniest, and bloodiest theatrical experiences of all time.
Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day.
Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell bad jokes… and all to music.
ASH - Role not available at this time.
LINDA - the prototypical girl next door, sweet, thoughtful, and completely devoted to Ash, until she turns evil and tries to kill him, laughs an annoyingly inordinate amount of time after transforming.
CHERYL - Ash's sister and the odd woman out in the group, looking to spend a week relaxing, she is the recipient of Scotty's jokes and torment, the only one to sense the evil surrounding the cabin, she is the first to be possessed, turning her into an aggressive, foul-mouthed demon that speaks in very bad puns, spends the majority of the show locked in the cellar.
SCOTTY - a prankster and Ash's best friend, thinks himself the brave one until he's forced to kill, then his panic leads him to flee, returns to warn Ash about the woods and attempts to help his friend even as he is knocking on death's door.
SHELLY - Beautiful, easy, and not too smart, Scotty's latest fling and looking to party, just because she becomes an evil demon doesn't mean she can't look good doing it.
ANNIE - The overbearing, sexy, explorer who finds missing pages to the Necronomicon and wants to reunite with her father to continue their research, very bossy and drawn to Ash, must be comfortable in a tear away revealing costume.
ED - Annie's down-trodden boyfriend who never gets a word in dge ways.
JAKE - A guide through the woods. Jake is very confident and very full of himself. He can also be stubborn and opportunistic
PROFESSOR KNOWBY - Annie's father and the finder of the Necronomicon.
